Pours black with a decent tan head and minimal lacing clinging for dear life. Aroma is of roast chocolate. Taste is ok, but I expected a little more for all the hype and high scores that I see for this beer. Flavors of roasted caramel and coffee, some malt sweetnessw and some hops come through. For the most part, the beer is pretty well balanced, but the hops add an odd bitterness that doesn't balance well with the rest of the brew. A little off balanced and also not as bold as I was anticipating, slightly weak and some of the complexity that should be there is gone.......
